Please don't stop! I am new to the forum, and although I have been modelling in most forms RC and static for 28 of my 35 years, I have never really done boats. I have a couple of boats on the go now, a cabin cruiser that I have put proper radio in and it now goes very well, and a very nice looking plastic perkasa that I am going to convert to 3 motors and props with brushless, purely because I think the sound of 3 brushless motors will sound pretty good and maybe slightly like 3 turbines in some kind of way. I won't put up that as a build as it's only really a conversion of a ready made boat. However I great a massive ammount of inspiration from looking at the builds like yours and the few others of similar quality on here!

Please remember, there are many that will come here to look at a top class piece of modelling/engineering, and be inspired by it, but will not feel ready or able to post their own efforts on here. I know people would encourage, it's nothing to do with that, it's purely that I will wait till I am ready to show something I am proud of before posting a build!

As a newbie, I really don't understand whats going on with this forum at the moment? Can anyone explain? there seem to be a whole load of people throwing various toys out of various prams because they don't agree with some minutae of whats being said, whether it's grammar, or locations of people or real names? I don't get it. I have used the net for years, I even met my wife on the net in a chatroom 10 years ago before they were banned. The net is a place where you can meet people and judge them purely on how they speak, it breaks down all illusions and image, you have no idea of sex or race unless they say. Personally I have no problem with that. If people choose to state location or name, fine, if not I don't care.

Sorry, I am wondering a bit, basically the point is this, I don't know you, who you are, how old you are or anything else, but I know you can build a damn good boat, and this is a boat forum so it's all I need to know really.

Keep up the excellent work! please!

Matt (my real name)

Thanks guys. I have been reading for a while but tend to try not to post too much when new as no body knows me. I also try to keep myself under control as I am an opinionated so and so. But I am one for common sense! I always mean what I say too. There seems to be a few people around at the moment that need to be told that we do actually appreciate what they do, trouble is, a lot of the time it's the whingers that speak up more often.

I don't know what has been said as I tend to just read builds and grey boat builds in general.

I thoroughly enjoy your builds and am stunned by the speed with which you build and the beauty of the end result - especially when I have been looking at my Flower hull - HMS Freesia - for nearly 12 months now.

T'internet is a funny thing, because it's all played out in front of us we think it consists of everything we can see. There must be many more people like myself who do not comment but get tremendous pleasure and learn so much from the work of yourself and the others who post.

There will always be mouthy knobsticks who are discontent with their own lives and have to spoil those of others.

Rise above it sir, show them the contempt they deserve.

Hi Matt, Your perkasa:

"a very nice looking plastic perkasa that I am going to convert to 3 motors and props with brushless, purely because I think the sound of 3 brushless motors will sound pretty good and maybe slightly like 3 turbines in some kind of way. I won't put up that as a build as it's only really a conversion of a ready made boat."  :-))

The Perkasa is a real favourite on Mayhem and many of us would enjoy your brushless power project. I would love to see a pic or two. Mayhem threads can be started by any boat modeller, irregardless of ability or experience and are amongst some of the best. I hope you'll post a thread re. your conversion ideas...........  :-)

Thanks for that. I will put some pics up. I bought it a while back and have not got round to ordering any bits for it yet. I have only got as far as stripping all the superstructure off to allow more access than the silly little hole. As soon as I get my stuf together to start the build I will start a thread.I took it up to show mark as I am in newport, and he thought it would make an interesting conversion. First stop some prop shafts from him!

Dicky
 I don't usually build Models beyond 19 - 1914 mostly I build 17th and 18th century sailing vessels so I'm not sure of my ground here,  I see you have the code flag "W" on the funnel   
was this a flotilla or squadron mark?
  She's a super looking Little ship and you've done a grand job ... I did Two short trip's on Flowers in the 60's One was a weather ship the other was a Whale Catcher  ... Sorry to hear you are packing up as I enjoy your builds

What's up with the Skype ?

It's playing up - for some reason it said I was not signed in. Been stuffing around for the past 30 minutes but I think it's up and running now. Tried to find CBR900's Skype address but it cannot find him - it's all a big mystery - still waiting to hear back from TF72

Seeing as I appear to have removed all the photos I will now put them back on at the end of my build.

Dicky,

Do you know what the difference is between your Snowberry and the USS Saucy kit.

Saucy is obtainable but not Snowberry???

Both are by Revell to 1:72 scale.

Thank you.

Thank you Dicky,

Have saved your build pics for reference.

Thanks again

The kit also has parts, although no instructions or transfers, for HMS Bluebell.
